New Publication

Happy to announce the publication of my new article, ‘Necromancy for the Masses? A Printed Version of the Compendiun Magiae Innaturalis Nigrae’, in the journal Magic, Ritual and Witchcraft. 

As you may know from a previous blog post, I am fascinated by the magical folklore surrounding the thirteenth century philosopher Michael Scot, especially the belief that he was a seasoned necromancer. In this article I take a gander at a extremely rare printed version of the Pseudo-Scot Compendium magiae innaturalis nigrae, a brief necromantic handbook for the conjuring of the demon Almuchabzar (and others).
